Thai by Thai Restaurant Review

: Taking a totally different approach to Thai restaurant fare, this cafeteria-style eatery lets you select your choices from the menu at an upfront counter, and while you sit down to wait, the kitchen makes everything fresh to order. There is a Thai-language menu with dishes most Westerners will likely have never tried. You’ll also find the usual preparations such as pad thai, panang curry, crispy chicken or shrimp, and Thai fried rice. As for desserts, there are only three choices, all based on the plain coconut sticky rice. The owner keeps prices down, so you can bring the family, enjoy an exotic meal, and not empty your pocketbook.
